On a nice day, lay in the grass. Take a nap. Have a picnic. Read a book. Enjoy the warmth of the sun. Enjoy the softness of the grass.
Say, “Cheers!” when you are toasting with someone. Look them in the eyes. Smile!
Listen. Listen to nature. Listen to laughter. Sit back and listen to the white noise. Listen to children. Listen to your heart. Listen.
You don’t have to go crazy, but spending a few minutes searching for an online coupon code, using an offer received in the mail, or asking a sales clerk or checkout person if there are any discounts you are eligible for, could save you some money. If it takes too long to find an active code, or the process to get the discount is onerous, it may not be worth the aggravation, but a few seconds to save real dollars? Definitely worth it!
If you use a shopping cart, put it in the cart corral (at a minimum) after loading your purchases in your car instead of just leaving the cart to roll around the parking lot. Doing so is courteous to the store employees and fellow shoppers. Don’t be the one who isn’t respectful!
Say ‘bless you,’ or the equivalent, after someone sneezes. Even in a movie theatre. Even during a meeting. Even during a wedding ceremony. Or during a funeral. It is good manners, and shows polite understanding toward the person who sneezed.
Happy, sad, hilarious, touching, embarrassing…share your memories with others. Tell your story. Keep your soul alive by connecting with others.
